The Business Alchemist: A Road Map to Authentic and Inspirational Leadership
The Business Alchemist: A Road Map to Authentic and Inspirational Leadership
Price: £12.34

5.0 out of 5 stars For business and for life, 11 Nov. 2014
This is an invaluable guide to understanding yourself and your own thinking as well as how others think. A must read for anyone who wants to develop themselves, their team, their organisation or their relationships generally. It helps you to see how people's behaviours are driven by how they think and process information, and once you grasp this you can work with rather than against the natural flow in order to motivate and work with all types of people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to the second installment!, 8 May 2013

This was a really enjoyable read - the author's language and style was mesmerising, creating a vivid landscape, soundscape and smellscape (if there is such a thing!). It was one of those books which you start not knowing where it is going to end up but find yourself having really enjoyed the journey. My only "criticism" would be that it ended too soon!

4.0 out of 5 stars A real eye-opener, 15 April 2013

I read this book, thinking I was not a natural "salesperson", but having read it, I realise that I am. This book reinforces what I'd always thought - sales needn't be a dark art, success simply depends on the ability to create trusting relationships.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new perspective, 7 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like many other reviewers, I purchased this book having seen Simon Sinek's TED talk. As some reviewers have commented, the book contains little or no new material over and above the talk but I liked that - the book re-affirms and clarifies the "Start with Why" pilosophy.

Whilst advertised as a book about leadership and organisations, I have found that the principles are just as relevant an powerful when applied to the individual.

I came across this book by accident a couple of years ago. Since then I've read it half a dozen times. The 8 keys are superb principles to live by. I would liken it to the Celestine Prophecy although I think it is a better read.
